Nestlé Ghana Limited, producers of Milo, organised invitational fun games to bring together mothers and pupils of Queensland International School at Sakumono.
The event, dubbed Milo ‘Mum and Me’ was organised specially to celebrate mothers through sports and fun games and create an engaging environment for mothers and their children to interact with each other and the brand.
Mrs. Funmilayo Osineye, Category Manager Business, Beverages and Coffee, when asked why the brand organised the games, said: “We needed to put this event together in appreciation of the mother and to say that the mothers are doing excellent jobs in their quest to do everything possible for their kids to attain the best in life.
“As you know, Milo is the energy drink for future champions and for the past three decades we have been organising sports related events such as the Milo marathon, the Milo Under 13 tournaments, and again the weekly aerobics events we run in schools to keep the children healthy. And so this event is also a continuation of all we have been doing,” she added.
The fun games commenced with a 2.5km health walk for both mothers and children from the premises of Queensland International School at Nungua through to Sakumono estates, Lashibi, Spintex Junction, and back to Queensland International School where the health walk started.
Other sporting engagements on the day were aerobics, tug of Milo, sack race competition, and penalty shootout. Mothers who gathered at the event had healthy living tips from an invited medical practitioner and also went through free health screening.
Patrons of the event were treated to free Nestlé products, photo-shoot for both mothers and children and bouncing castle plus other fun activities for the kids.
